Editorial Reviews for Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay Alexander Valley

Vintage: 2010 12/18/2012

Lightly nutty and quite dry and earthy on the nose with gently aromatic dried apple and preserved citrus fruits layered over vanilla and ginger cream notes. A fine blend of bright acidity and creamy mouthfeel makes this bright and nervous in the mouth. The flavors are complex and broad on the palate with base notes of nuts, dried flowers and a very fine used wood sheen that supports crisp heirloom apple, green plum and dried lime flavors. The finish is long and a bit creamier and sweeter with vanilla notes coming to the fore over the sweet, ripe fruit and gently spicy oak flavors. There's a hint of sweetness that may be off-putting to some here but this is awfully good in this style. 91pts Acidity: Medium Perceived Sweetness: Medium Low Oak: Medium Low Spicy Flavors: Medium Low Savory Flavors: Medium Fruity Flavors: Medium High Intensity of Flavor: Medium Weight in Mouth: Medium

With upfront apple, pear, honey, butter cream, and honeysuckle floral notes, this wine is perfectly balanced with fruit and creamy caramel, marshmallow and a lingering, toasted oak finish. This versatile, full-bodied Chardonnay pairs perfectly with fish, poultry, white meat and pasta entrees.

Another delicious blockbuster Chardonnay from Ferrari Carano. This has that classic California style: fruit, butter, and vanilla.

Winemaker's Notes:

Not yet reviewed; 2011 vintage rated 91 points by Connoisseurs' Guide: Medium-light golden yellow; attractive, assertive, fragrant, lemony, pear and green apple aroma with light mineral notes; medium to medium-full body; fleshy, pear and apple flavors with firm acidity, a trace of toasty oak, and a slight creaminess in the mouthfeel; lingering aftertaste. A very easy to like Chardonnay, and we also like it having a screw cap. Good value and good availability. Very highly recommended. 14.1% alcohol; 100% barrel fermented; 90% malolactic fermentation; released January 2013.
